Here's a Ball

Here's a ball
(make circle with thumb and index finger)
And here's a ball
(place thumbs and index fingers together to make larger ball)
A great big ball I see!
(raise arms over head and touch fingertips)

Shall we count them?
Are you ready?
(repeat first motion)
(repeat second motion)
(repeat third motion)

I had such a great time visiting Miss Shank's classroom!  I hope the children and teachers had as much fun as I did!  I enjoyed having a chance to sing a few songs with them, including (during Thursday's visit) a VERY silly version of "The Wheels on the Bus"!  You just never know who - or WHAT - will board the bus when Mrs. B is driving!

Each Outreach Storytime includes activities that support one or more of the five early literacy practices identified as essential in helping your child develop the skills they need before they can learn to read. The five practices – singing, talking, reading, playing and writing –were developed for Every Child Ready to Read®, an initiative of the Association for Library Services for Children (ALSC) and the Public Library Association (PLA).
